Egypt defender Adam El-Abd has become Shrewsbury Town's ninth signing of the summer after agreeing a two-year contract at Greenhous Meadow.

The experienced 31-year-old was released by Bristol City at the end of last season.

El-Abd started his career at Brighton, clocking up over 300 appearances for the Seagulls in nearly 11 years.

He moved to Ashton Gate in January 2014 before loan spells with Bury, Swindon and Gillingham.

El-Abd joins former Bury full-back Joe Riley in Shropshire as boss Micky Mellon continues to rebuild his squad ahead of the new League One campaign.
